Can Crohn's make you feel terribly nauseous?  I have felt so sick to my upper stomach for about a week now.  If I eat a little, it helps for about 1/2 an hour or so but I cannot eat much and I am so nauseous I just want to curl up into a ball and lay down and do nothing!  My diarrhea and lower stomach problems are starting to come back as well.   I am currently on both prednisone and metronidizole.  I thought these two drugs were supposed to keep Crohn's away?  sad
 
Any thoughts anyone?  confused

I don't know that any drugs will really keep Crohn's away. Keep it at bay is more likely - if you're lucky to find the right dose and meds for you. As far as the nausea - it is absolutely typical of crohn's. One of the nasty perks of feeling like crap all the time. I'm sorry you're nauseated. Do the best you can with food and hang in there. If it's horrific maybe your GI can prescribe you something for the nausea (phenergan - makes you sleepy, but works great and zofran - doesn't make you sleepy but costs $$$$ and some insurance won't give you very many pills).

Indigo,
One of the major side effects of metronidazole is nausea, so that may be the culprit in your case, especially if you recently started on it...you should ask your doc about that!

How long have you been on the metronidazole? One side effect can be nausea. Otherwise it may be good old Crohns manifesting itself in another delightful way . . .

Thanks everyone.

I have been on the metronidizole for about 2 months now.  Think that could be doing it?
